A section of Gor Mahia players has threatened not to honour their CAF Champions League preliminary round clash against APR on November 28, 2020.
The players were set to undergo a Covid test on Wednesday with the Immigration department ahead of their departure to Kigali on Thursday but none of them showed up with the team refusing to attend training too on the day.
A source has revealed to Pepeta that the players are on a go-slow with club chairman Ambrose Rachier having admitted the same in his presser on Tuesday; the same said by secretary-general Sam Ochola who has been in a war of words with his chairman.
“They (Gor players) didn’t show up for the tests nor training today. They decided to stay at home. Their arrears were to be paid before they left for Rwanda as that was the agreement but that hasn’t happened,” the source revealed.
The team has been scheduled to leave the country on Thursday but it isn’t clear just yet if the same will happen as the club officials tussle over deals by the Football Kenya Federation.
Ochola claims that the club had waited for some funds from the federation to help them settle the dues but that hasn’t happened.
